What Will Personal Challenge of Consistent Action Do?

What Will Personal Challenge of Consistent Action Do For You?

 

One day, about twenty-seven days ago, I woke up thinking ~, what if I walked outside everyday for thirty minutes for ninety days? {Remember that’s outside in every kind of weather}

I wondered if I could maintain it for the entire ninety days. If I could what type of transformations, would my body go through? If I could what type of psychological changes would take place in me.

I said the only way for me to begin this tall feat was to record it and to ensure that I remained steady with it I posted in on every social media I was a part of.

Today is day twenty-seven, and I begin tracking here on my blog. I will continue to inform you on how the human spirit can challenge itself and cause a lowering of blood pressure even more.

The days of tracking on my YouTube channel are a little mixed up because I was so busy making sure I was tracking on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr I would forget some days of uploading to YouTube… Now I have a system that is helping me stay on track.

Because I am taking some physical action every day, I am so energized to do more, see more, and be more!

With making sure I make it my mission every day to not let the sunset without walking outside for 30 minutes, now I feel like I can challenge myself with other tasks as well.

Like:

  • Spend two solid hours working my business
  • Place ten ads per day
  • Make fifth-teen calls by 5pm
  • Write out my six most important things to do by midnight
  • Spend 30 minutes by the water reflecting/receiving new ideas
  • Journal my progress daily

To spend just 90 days on these few tasks it will be amazing the amount of momentum I will be in.

Like I said this is only day 27 and I am already so focused. I believe in miracles ~ Do you?

Be sure to stop by the YouTube Channel to see more of the weather I got to walk outside in for 30 minutes.

Here’s one of my video clips…

 

Love and blessing to you,

How I Know Healthy Coffee Lowered My Blood Pressure?

Ganoderma pictureHow I Know Healthy Coffee Lowered My Blood Pressure?
 
When my high blood pressure (BP) diagnosis was given to me I was, at first, surprised. Then I recalled that my father had a heart attack when I was in high school. Well, I thought, maybe it’s my genes catching up with me. Something just didn’t set right with me about it, thou. I asked the doctor to check it again and she said yes, you have hypertension, better known as high blood pressure. I was prescribed a pill to help lower my BP at that point.   Remembering the doctor told me if I ever felt a tingling in my hands to go to the emergency room.

 

One day I awoken to extreme tingling in my hands, immediately I did not pass go, I went straight to the emergency room. They took my blood pressure sure enough; it was 181/140 they were all around me making sure they did everything they could to bring it down. Since my father had a heart attack and had to have quadruple bypass surgery they were, very attentive to me, to say the least. At the discharge of that experience, they prescribe another pill to take along with the one I was on already. Now that makes two high blood pressure pills every day.

 

You know statistics say that most people have heart attacks on Monday morning. I truly wonder if that is because people just are so sick of their jobs that they don’t want to be at they would rather spend the day at the hospital. True story, I was on my way to work one Monday morning and my chest started feeling like it was caving in… I drove myself straight to the emergency room right down the street from my job. They did many tests and had me there all day long giving me all sorts of tests to make sure I was not having a heart attack. One thing I do know for sure, when you say you are experiencing chest pains, those ER workers go into mega professional mode.

 

Upon discharge of the emergency room, they put me on an aspirin a day regimen. Now that means I am now taking the two blood pressure pills and an aspirin everyday to maintain my BP at a normal level.   I am not happy about all these drugs. You see all my life up to this point, I was a healthy person I lived a healthy lifestyle. I never had to go to the doctor for anything because I was just healthy. Having to deal with remembering to take all these drugs into my body not knowing what else they were doing to my body, I just did not like it.

 

This is when I decided to take other methods of lowering my BP. I began looking around at all the health food stores, herbal centers, holistic methods for everything and anything to find alternatives to taking all these pills. I had a friend who had started her own business as a gourmet beverage distributor, she had me over for a tasting and I really like the taste of the coffee and teas. However, when she said they are infused with an herb called Ganoderma my ears perked up. I said, what is that? She said it’s a ancient Chinese herb {most people say that to make their products sound like they have some legitimacy, right} that only their royalty had the privilege to intake because of its vast benefits. I decided to do my due diligence about this herb. Sure enough, I found great amounts of research from different medical sources that stated this “Ganoderma” herb helps to lower blood pressure.

 

The light bulb in my head illuminated! In September of 2013, I began drinking one cup a day of these coffee and teas and now March 2014 I am happy to say I am off all my BP medication.

 

My blood pressure has maintained a healthy 128/78 or around there since January 2014. I know in my heart, the healthy coffee lowered my BP and I am so happy about it. Life without having to take any meds is fabulous! I am now starting a 90-Day challenge to myself to walk outside for 30 minutes every day no matter what the weather. On day six now and starting to enjoy it more and more. If you are suffering from high blood pressure or know someone who is, please believe me I know what you/them are going through. Join me at my YouTube channel and we can live this healthy lifestyle together.

 

I am so grateful to find this herb it’s simple to drink a healthy coffee that has helped to lower my blood pressure. I feel obligated to tell anyone else who is suffering with hypertension to see if it works for them too.

 

To your health,

P.S. Take time everyday to spend time with yourself, if it is walking outside or something you love to do, just take time to spend quality time with you! You deserve it!

 

 

 

Fruits and Veggies Help Lower Blood Pressure

Dr Dubios Fruits and veggies help lower blood pressure.

I was privilege to hear Dr. Richard BuBois {Declared one of the Best Doctors in America} speak last night at a country club event.  I went to actually go network with some of the people at the country club.  To my surprise the information he spoke about was more interesting then I had ever imagined.

When he began speaking about the many reasons people have issue with their heart and how high blood pressure or heart disease on the whole is approximately 90% preventable, I began to listen to him.  Just thinking that my whole life I was told that “it’s in my genes” so I couldn’t do anything about getting the diseases that my parents had.  When he said that is NOT true, I was leaning in to hear more.

He spoke about changing what you put into your body makes a huge difference in how your body handles its environment better than anything else.  He said maintaining a whole food plant based diet will make your life better able to live a longer more vibrant life.  Having at least 7 – 13 servings of fruits and veggies everyday will make a dramatic change in your overall health.

Before I knew it I was writing down information on a note pad that I had and I just wanted to know more about how I can possibly intake 7- 13 servings of fruits and veggies in a day.  He began to speak about all the studies that have taken place over the last two decades while he has been practicing as a MD of infectious diseases.

I recall him saying about one study that was performed of 12,000 doctors for over 8 years to see if multivitamins and there was no proven change in their resistance to heart disease.  However, they did a study on athletes with a placebo and those who used the juice+ products had greater recovery than the other group.

This note “Research subjects who consumed Juice Plus+ were better able to maintain the normal, healthy elasticity of arteries, even after a high-fat meal; maintain normal levels of homocysteine, a waste product associated with heart health; and demonstrated positive effects on several other measures of vascular health.” was also revealed.

Just the possibility of taking either a capsule that contains 7 – 13 servings of fruits and veggies or attempting to eat 7 – 13 servings of fruits and veggies, which would you prefer?   This capsules are according to Dr. Richard DuBois are whole food and is bio-available meaning it gets into the blood stream easier and fully like actually eating the whole food.

He said so many things that were so interesting that I have since watched a couple of his videos on YouTube and you can too.  Here’s one that I found to be of value to me http://youtu.be/jnCrGA9l4rI

He said the key is to have a balance of what MOTHER NATURE gives us.  Considering that a serving is slightly smaller than our fist… for us to get 7- 13 is highly impossible if we were to attempt to eat all of them.

I will see if this has any change in my blood pressure over a 90 day period and I will let you know about it. You could see if they may be helpful for you, too.

To your success,

Eyvette

P.S. Dr. Richard DuBois stated we must have a balance of mother nature with Whole food based diet, B-12 & D3 daily.  That we must strive for 30 minutes of exercise everyday to keep out weight down and eat to prevent heart attacks or by taking Juice Plus+ to lower homocyteine.

 

Tai Chi To Lower Your Blood Pressure?

Tai chi imageTai Chi To Lower Your Blood Pressure?

Starting out taking a beginner class of Tai Chi I had no idea that it was good for lowering blood pressure.  I began taking it to just relieve stress and while taking it my teacher explained that it is great for lowering blood pressure.  The old saying is correct, “when the student is ready the teacher will appear”. I told people all around me that I liked the way that Tai Chi looked when people were doing it and I would like to take a class in it.  Little did I know there was a class being taught in the gym that I frequented.

I arrived at the class he first time to a room full of about ten people who were all in sync with each movement of Tai Chi and I fell in love with Tai Chi.  My teacher, Mr. John Crouse, is great because he gives enormous amounts of Tai Chi history that helps us to understand the beauty of this wonderful health benefit.

He has explained that Tai Chi or T’ai Chi Ch ‘uan (sometimes spelled Taijiquan) is a centuries-old Chinese martial art.  Up until modern times, Tai Chi was kept secret by today it is practiced by millions of people all over the world primarily for its health benefits.

The postures and movements of Tai Chi are derived from the principles that govern the interaction of Yin creates Yang.  In practice, the Tai Chi player is continually shifting between empty and full weight, between soft and firm in order to achieve proper equilibrium. The movements are supple and primarily circular in nature.

Tai Chi is related in many ways to acupuncture: proper practice will increase and balance the flow of Chi (life-energy) throughout the body.  Tai Chi has an excellent reputation as a healing exercise and many Doctors in China today prescribe it for their patients.  Western Doctors and therapists are also beginning to recognize the value of Tai Chi.  Except for a very few special cases, no one is too old or too weak to begin Tai Chi.

This is just a beginning of some ways to improve lowering your blood pressure and I will be posting more for you on how to reduce your blood pressure and eventually come off your high blood pressure medications, like I did.

Simple ways Tai Chi helps To Lower Your Blood Pressure!
